JOHNSTON, R.I. (AP) - A second teenager has died after a fiery car crash at a Johnston gas station. Two other people were injured.

State police say an 87-year-old woman was trying to make a left turn off Route 6 Tuesday afternoon when her Buick collided with an Audi driven by a 19-year-old man, who was heading straight through the intersection.

Police say the Audi went into the parking lot of a Sunoco gas station. It then struck an unoccupied SUV, which hit a gas pump and burst into flames.

Authorities said 18-year-old Dylan Laurenzo died Wednesday morning. Police previously announced that 18-year-old Taylor Reilly was pronounced dead at a hospital. Both were passengers in the Audi.

The older driver was reported in critical condition Wednesday.

The crash remains under investigation.
